Rapper Theophilus London found ‘safe’ after missing in LA: Police


Rapper Theophilus London, who went missing in Los Angeles last week, has been found “in good condition” and has been reunited with his family, the LAPD said Thursday.

Police’s confirmation that London has been found comes a day after the Grammy-winning rapper’s cousin Michael Noel shared on his Instagram page that London had been found “safe and well”.

“I am very grateful to everyone who helped me find my cousin. Having such a strong support system of family and friends is refreshing and helpful!!! God bless each and every one of you,” Noel wrote on Instagram late Wednesday.

Los Angeles police asked for the public’s help in finding London on December 28, saying the rapper had been missing since October. Authorities say he was last seen in the Skid Row neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles around 12 a.m. local time on October 25.

“The informant and family members of Theophilus lost contact with him in October 2022. London has not been seen since and his family is concerned,” the LAPD said.

London’s cousin, Michael Noel, shared a post on his Instagram page urging anyone with information on London’s whereabouts to come forward.

– Theo, we will find you. Your family and friends love you, we need you. We want you to join us in our presence. We are looking for you to bring you home.” he writes.

London, who has more than 227,000 followers on Instagram, has been active on the platform but appears to have not posted since July.

London was born in Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean and later moved with his family to Brooklyn, New York.

London has released three studio albums and is known for working with artists such as Ye, formerly known as Kanye West. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance at the 58th Grammy Awards in 2016 for his performance on West’s All Day, featuring Allan Royal and Paul McCartney.
